Welcome to Walks From The Woodman

The Woodman, Wildhill is producing a booklet containing 10 walks that start and finish in the pub’s car park. The circular walks range from 2.6 to 8.5 miles long. Many use the same paths out of The Woodman car park before branching off to explore different areas of the local countryside.
